Established in 1932 as a migratory bird refuge, Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge encompasses a 22-mile segment of the southeast Atlantic coast. The refuge consists of 66, 287 acres which include a fascinating expanse of barrier islands, salt marshes, intricate coastal waterways, long sandy beaches, fresh and brackish water impoundments, and maritime forest. Points of interest include Bulls Island, Cape Island, and Lighthouse Island where two lighthouses, no longer operational, still stand.
'Cause I know, once in a while we would find
The sound of your heart beats with mine
And someday, the crash of the waves will be far away
And I will sail in your eyes
‘Cause when it’s time
I’ll leave the ocean behind
